    Interesting to find out how they could afford to get to Barbados in the first place. Eastern Europeans are arrested daily in the UK for mostly theft and rape.

    They are now going to the Caribbean with their scamming tricks. Glad they are caught.

    The ATM at Scotiabank at Coconut Walk was broken over the weekend. The slot for the credit card was pushed inside the machine. I wonder if this is related.

    These Eastern Europeans are well known over Europe for this kind of crime. When 2 young men arrive in Barbados with no females to holiday with or no bajans to vouch for them, they should be questioned and searched. If they had been Jamaican they would have been. Give them some good time in jail and make sure they can never return again! Then watch out for the next set.

    I don’t know but have Barbados the electronic data base security, for local and international criminal activity or do we depend on signals from a drum beat, if I may recall two or three of these people were involve last year in Barbados doing the same.
